About this title

Synopsis:

Part of a major reprinting of renowned naturalist Jim Arnosky's beloved All About series, All About Deer is a thorough and colorful introduction to the world of deer.

In Spring 08, Scholastic Nonfiction is relaunching Jim Arnosky's treasured All About series with all-new paperback covers! In All About Deer, Arnosky shows how these animals grow and live, answering kids' biggest questions about deer, such as: What do deer eat? What are antlers made of? Why do deer run away from humans? Packed with intriguing information and brought to life by Arnosky's vibrant watercolors, this book will fascinate young readers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4?Another inviting nature book that follows the pattern of the earlier books in the series, beginning with informative end papers (here they are covered with deer tracks) and a life-sized six-page spread of twin fawns. Arnosky's watercolors are more subtle and informative here than in his Deer at the Brook (Lothrop, 1986). Large, diaphanous illustrations are surrounded by smaller ones that expand on the basic facts in the text. The placement of deer in the family Cervidae and the six North and Central American species are noted; a group portrait offers a size comparison for them. The prevalent white-tailed deer is used to illustrate traits and behaviors common to the American deer throughout the rest of the book. Camouflaging shape and color, hooves, antlers, and highly developed senses are explained. Birth, growth and herding, and the many dangers these delicate animals face are clearly described. The author's wonderfully simple and enticing style ensures that children will look at these wild animals with both wonder and understanding.?Susan Oliver, Hillsborough County Science Library at MOSI, Tampa, FL
